Africa's education challenge: How to keep girls in school?

Emmanuel Macron is in Dakar this Friday to co-host, alongside Senegal's President Macky Sall, a Global Partnership for Education Financing Conference. Public spending for education in the developing world is much lower than in developed nations. Keeping boys and especially girls in school is key. If all the girls in the world who don't go to school were a country, they would be the world's tenth most populous nation. What will it take to fix this problem?

Produced by Charles WENTE, Tatiana REITER and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.

By François PICARD
